I'm still on Oracle Netbeans 8.2 because Java EE support "just works" and it's still the recommended version in our dev guide.

Apache Netbeans 11 is supposed to restore Java EE (Jakarta EE) support and they are running a survey for their release candidate with a deadline of this Sunday, March 24th. They mention testing deployment to Glassfish, specifically, which is a good sign. Please see below for details.

I captured the many manual steps I had to take in my attempts to get Netbeans 10 working with Glassfish at

My hope is that with Netbeans 11, everything just works*. If anyone out there has time to try out the release candidate and take the survey, I'm sure the Netbeans team would appreciate it.



* Including the Netbeans Connector Chrome Extension extension, without needing the workaround I posted about at

Subject: Apache NetBeans IDE 11.0 Community Acceptance Survey
To: <>, NetCAT team <>, <>

Hello NetBeans community,

      Apache NetBeans IDE 11.0 Vote Candidate (VC) 4 [1] build has been
published [1] and so the time for the final Community Acceptance survey
[2] has come too. The essential purpose of this survey is to find out if
NetBeans community accepts the latest VC build as ready for GA or not.
Please note that this poll is not about Apache NetBeans IDE 11.0 sources
but about its functionality and behavior.


      This is a very important milestone of the release cycle so we turn
to you - NetBeans users - with request for help. Please download this
Vote Candidate, edit your Java/HTML/JavaScript/PHP sources, debug the
code, try refactoring features, deploy to Tomcat/GlassFish, simply test
your typical use cases and once you gain a solid opinion about the VC
build please take this short survey. It will stay open until Sunday -
March 24th midnight last timezone. In spite of that please complete the
survey as soon as you can.

Thanks for your cooperation and feedback!
Best regards,
Jiří Kovalský
